A New York day spa, Metamorphosis, is currently booked to the brim with couples who plan to be rubbed, scrubbed and oiled up with chocolate products.
Some of the Valentines Day-themed treatments include body massages with oils scented like chocolate cake, chocolate raspberry or chocolate mint; a chocolate mineral buff which sheds dead skin; and a chocolate paraffin treatment to smooth out hands and feet.
Spa owner Cleo Londono says people like coming out of the treatment rooms smelling good enough to eat, but she doesnt recommend licking yourself or your partner after a rubdown because none of the products taste like chocolate.
Prices for the chocolate spa indulgences start at $30 for a hand treatment and go up to $300 for a package that includes a chocolate facial, chocolate raspberry body scrub, chocolate massage, chocolate mint pedicure and chocolate paraffin treatment.
